so why again did you change to a new account? 

you're trying to talk around the point, the original being that there are "friends of the program" or as some people call them "bagmen" at OSU.  What do I need to point to other than what has already been reported? 

Also regarding your "patterns".  OSU hasnt had last minute signings?  hasnt had athletes driving nice cars?  the more you try to point at others you're just solidifying my argument.  im not singling out OSU.  What I am saying is that the culture exists at ALL big programs and pretending it doesnt is akin to the photo i posted for you with the ostrich and the gentleman with their heads in the sand.

But you accused sec schools of having bagmen, specifically ole miss and auburn.  Neither of which have faced any charges, sanctions or concrete allegations.  

If you're saying they exist at those two schools then I'm telling you they exist here as well.

I just feel bad for kids that get re-ranked because of injuries sustained where they may not have been able to play football anymore.  Makes it come off as though they failed in some way if you don't know their specific story.

But you're saying auburn and ole miss have bagmen and I asked you to prove that and you choose to attack and deflect instead.  

We learn about things after the fact as is the nature of news, would you have known before the story broke about tatgate?  Did that mean it wasn't happening until it was reported on?

theres a huge difference between being realistic and a dreamer.  youre a dreamer if you dont think OSU has done or at some point in the future wont do something that someone somewhere considers shady. 

in fact we had a really long thread a while ago about urban supposedly forcing players out through medicals and whatnot. 

I dont understand where the auburn or ole miss shady recruiting comes into play?  have they done something other than land star recruits that you have documented evidence of a systemic problem in relation to their recruiting practices?

i upvoted every post you made in these responses cdub, as its almost exactly what i would have said.

bagmen or "friends of the program" exist at every institution where those types of people feel they can make a difference.  do all of them necessarily mean to do harm?  of course not. 

to my follower, there havent been any connections with "bagmen" allegedly working for/with SEC teams.  Merely on behalf of them, as the other boosters mentioned by cdub have done for OSU athletes.

benefits of recruiting in texas, his #40 overall class consists of exactly 3 of 19 kids not in texas.  midwest doesnt have that amount of quality talent at its disposal anymore.

You're on drugs if you don't think there aren't any bagmen for OSU either.  It's a reality of the times we live in. 

I don't hate Alabama nearly as much as I hate their fanbase, it's the same reason so many people hate OSU.  for every levelheaded fan there's enough nut jobs that want to threaten lives of players or give out addresses to harass alumni etc.

thats pretty rude to say about a kid thats probably not even 18 yet and was almost a buckeye

Comment 03 Feb 2016

if he doesnt decide he wants to attend a school before you offer another player that will commit isnt the same thing as leaving a guy out to dry. 

offering someone, having them commit and then deciding to take someone else is what i would consider out to dry.

You're measuring potential vs production.  I'm not saying he's garbage by any stretch.  Does a couple great seasons equate to top receiver all time?  I don't think so, but it's my opinion.
